Rpi and Kali

Hi guys, I'm new here, as i recieved my raspberry few days ago.

I'm sorry to bother you with a subject already seen in this forum and on the internet, but i didn't found the solution...

I explain myself,
I want to set up Kali linux on my raspberry B+, but nothing seems to work. The pi won't boot. I tried a lot of image, but only from windows. (1.0.5,1.0.6,1.0.6a,1.0.7,1.0.8, the rpi version, and the armel version.)

I try raspbian, archlinux and riscos, everything works.

I don't know what to do, if someone had an idea!

Thanks!

Maybe you should ask on the Kali forum (https://forums.kali.org/forum.php)?
There's also a doc there on installing Kali on the Pi http://docs.kali.org/armel-armhf/instal ... spberry-pi

Have you updated the /boot (FAT partition) with bootcode.bin and start.elf which have the B+ firmware changes?

Then you'll need to ask for help on the Kali forums.

I have also tried with Pwnpi and Ha-pi. Even if i replace bootcode.ini and start.elf or the whole boot folder, nothing happen.
Seems like i can only use the os include in noob :cry:


If this info could help : both led are on (red and green) and they don't move

Nope, I'm afraid if Kali can't / won't fix their distro to work on the B+, then there's not much you can do. :(

I guess if you were desperate you could buy a Model B (not B+) Pi?

Yeah, I think a second raspberry could be a great idea for my projects :D

I had a different problem:
My would boot but kept on displaying this message so I couldn't login.

Code: Select all

usb 30000x21(something like that): error usb (can't remember the rest) 
something about it not being able to find the device even when nothing was plugged in right after saying it found it.
Help?

I'm afraid we need the exact error message in order to be able to diagnose any problems. Maybe you could take a mobile-phone-camera picture? (but again, in a new thread please :) )

I got Kali working on the B+ with the 3.12.y kernel. I built mine on an existing kali vm with the following commands:

Code: Select all

git clone https://github.com/offensive-security/kali-arm-build-scripts
cd kali-arm-build-scripts
sed -i 's/3.13.y/3.12.y/g' rpi.sh
./build-deps.sh
yes "" | ./rpi.sh 1.3.3.7
After it's done building the compressed image will be located at kali-arm-build-scripts/rpi-1.3.3.7/kali-1.3.3.7-rpi.img.xz

My B+ came in the mail today, Kali wouldn't boot, made a local clone of the above with git, mounted the fat32 partition on the micro SD card, copied bootcode.bin and start.elf over. Powered up the pi, figuring that based on the contents of this thread that it probably wouldn't help - and it booted.

I used kali-linux-1.0.6a-rpi.img that I downloaded maybe a week ago or so when I originally wrote the card.

When it wasn't booting, the red LED would be on and the green would flash and go dark (whereas the raspbian sd image I have would flash green a bit more and boot) - which is different than the 'red and green both on' reported here. Anyway - figured I'd throw that out there, replacing bootcode.bin and start.elf are worth a try if you're having this issue and haven't yet tried it.

Try booting into the GUI though. startx results in a failure of your peripherals.

This is interesting, what version of kali are you using?

Not working for me on a B+ with latest kali-1.0.7-rpi.img : USB and Ethernet drivers missing.
Tried with the latest bootcode.bin and start.elf from git, and also with bootcode.bin and start.elf from a current NOOBS image....

Some things to try -
Try downloading the Kali-109-rpi Image directly from the ARM Custom Images
Then write the image to the SDcard (This worked first time for me)
